Winemaker Notes
"With the creation of this wine, Adirondack Winery is a proud member of the National Meritage Alliance. Meritage is an invented word that combines ""merit"" and ""heritage"" - reflecting the quality of the grapes and the ancient art of blending wine. Meritage wines are handcrafted red or white wines blended from the ""noble"" Bordeaux grape varieties. A Meritage wine is considered to be the very best of the vintage. Blending is the personal expression of the winemaker's vision, a combination of skill and intuition that unites the elements of the winemaking process to create a work of art. It is the magic that gifted winemakers use to create wines of intrigue and enchantment."
Food Pairing Notes
While we love savoring this wine on its own, our Meritage makes a great match for a charred burger with gruyere cheese, mushrooms and onions. Think rich meats with earthy, nutty flavors and you will have an excellent meal. Wood-fired pizza and tomato-based pasta dishes with rich spices or meat sauces also pair well!

The perfect wine for a fall or winter night. Hearty and warming. I found it’s good with a nice meat and cheese plate bits good enough and bold enough to stand on its own. A must try!

I wish I could give it more stars. This has to be one of the very best Heritage wines I have ever had. I love the Finger Lakes and my husband and I have visited Napa, Sonoma and Paso Robels and this Meritage would surpass them. I absolutely love this wine!
